Onkohan tätä luettu lainkaan EK:ssa? "Finland ranks 1st in this edition of the Europe 2020 Competitiveness Index, supported by its stronger performance in laying the foundations for smart growth since the 2012 edition. This is driven by a large focus on education and training (1st in this pillar), which has provided the workforce with the skills needed to adapt rapidly to a changing environment, and has laid the groundwork for high levels of technological adoption and innovation. Finland remains one of the innovation powerhouses in Europe, ranking 1st in the innovative Europe pillar, and a global leader in moving towards a digital economy (1st). Finland’s enterprise environment (2nd) fosters business creation, supported by readily available finance for business investment. Finland also receives a strong assessment in the inclusive growth component (2nd); it has a well-functioning labour market and relatively strong labour market participation, as well as strong social inclusion (1st) based on low inequality in the country, providing social services and the opportunity for its citizens to improve their economic status independent of their socio-economic background (1st in social mobility). Finland’s strong showing on the sustainability component (2nd) demonstrates that its economic prowess does not come at the expense of environmentally sustainable practices and outcomes.
